large very long fortunately it was out in the open country. there's no leaves in the trees. oftentimes you'll see that when you're looking at a picture of a tornadoes, and these storms also produce some substantial hail. it wasn't the size of the hail; it was the amount of it. and you can see on the roads here there's tracks out there. it was probably an inch deep or so some spots and the snow plows were called in, in some parts of butler county they were so slick with the hail afternoon. now we're taking you back to 3:54 and this is where most of the action occurred up here in parts of butler and grundy counties, and there was a super cell here just to the southeast of parkersburg that spun up some tornadoes and there's another one just to the north of grundy center. these two counties took the brunt of the severe weather and once we got the sunset these things fell apart very quickly. the front raced across eastern iowa and the rain has moved into wisconsin and illinois and our forecast remains dry the rest of
daytime hours tomorrow. so, if you're doing the commute thing tomorrow morning here in the corridor, looks like temperatures will be in the range of 35 to 37 degrees, and we'll be breaking out the skies by tomorrow morning so i'm expecting the sunshine and we're going to start a cooling trend as this big low pressure has dumped eight to ten inches starts spinning some cold air in our direction and this is the system that produced t tornadoes in the area. surface winds out of the south and that generated the storms today. essentially that's all gone and now you can see some light snow up here in northwestern iowa dropping temperatures to around 34 degrees in spencer, 39 in fort dodge and sioux city. and in our predictor, it indicates how the clouds start to part in eastern iowa. there could be a few showers
around 6:00 a.m. most of us should get up to partly cloudy skies and we'll keep those during the dame tomorrow and it's late in the afternoon, some additional clouds will form in iowa and that will be associated with the air that could bring a few flakes of snow wednesday or thursday. we'll go in 35 in allocator, and waterloo and manchester, bottoming out around 35 to 39 degrees. the skies should be mostly sunny, and a few clouds coming in later in the afternoon. temperatures 45 to 48 degrees in our southern counties, might being a few spots to get close to 50 in the far south otherwise 48 in cedar rapids, 49 in iowa city, and 46 in tema and the forecast has the colder air wednesday and thursday, that's when we could see a few rain or snow showers.
